I'm young and a energetic sign language interpreter. I've been signing practically all my life because my brother is deaf. I don't believe in wasting countless hours studying a book because sign language is an expressive language, and the best way to learn is to be expressive and practice. I've used sign language to give speeches and presentations to groups ranging from as little as 10 to over 3,000. I believe learning the language should be fun and something that enriches your life.
I've taught 13 people sign language thus far, and their ages ranged from 6 years old to 63 so I'm comfortable with a variety of ages. My brother has downs syndrome so I'm even used to working with handicapped people.
Too my brother, though being 30 years of age, reads at about a 5th grade level because of his handicap. For years I have worked closely with him to improve in his reading and comprehension.
I myself am an avid reader and during high school and collage have taken classes in academic reading, literature, and critical reading.
